Helping create positive, enduring change in the world

2019 Social Responsibility Report

Our purpose as a firm is to help create positive, enduring change in the world.
Our approach to social responsibility includes empowering our people to give back to their communities, operating our firm in ways that are socially responsible and environmentally sustainable, and working with our clients to intentionally address societal challenges. This year has brought unprecedented turmoil and crises of health and racial injustice. These events have deepened our commitment to supporting communities across the globe, both in response to and beyond these crises. The work highlighted in our 2019 Social Responsibility Report lay the foundation for our response, and our 2020 report will convey how we continue to rise to these and other global challenges.
